Bee thistle lavender watercolor by Artist Sophie

The lovely lady that purchased this is a bee keeper in her spare time and she posted me a very tasty pot of her honey, which was a very kind unexpected gift. I asked her how many bees it takes to make a jar of honey and she told me it takes a bee’s whole life span (six weeks) to make one eight of a tea spoon. Busy Busy bee’s, I think I will appreciate every mouthful of honey on toast much much more knowing that. I enjoyed painting bee’s so much that I will be painting more in future.

Yippee my new card mounts have arrived and the black looks stunning with the bee paintings. Hand painted bee and thistle painting. Umm I quite fancy some honey on toast now. I have painted two bee’s but will sell them separately.  Thanks Artist Sophie.
